More on Tillis' attack against Planned Parenthood

Using female veterans to engage in right-wing kabuki theatre:

"I was disappointed yesterday to see my Republican colleagues try and manipulate a good veterans bill — a noble bill — for political purposes," the Democratic leader said, adding that Republicans "put Fox News ahead of the welfare of American veterans."

But Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who lead the Republican push to change Murray's bill, quickly fired back, saying his amendments weren't "political attacks."
Three amendments he said were focused on improving government efficiency, while another would prevent the VA from working with organizations "that take human aborted babies' organs and sell them."

Pardon my French, but what a putain de idiot. In one sentence he says it isn't political, and the next he throws out the newest and stinkiest political meme. If Thommy boy is trying to style himself after Donald Trump, he's off to a good start.

90% attendance is still AWOL, Thommy boy

Tillis skips ISIS briefing to brown nose Cheney:

Tillis came down on Hagan for missing a briefing about the terrorist group ISIS. It was a fact. She missed the briefing. There was no context in the ad as to why she missed it. Just the fact.

Tillis said he could do a better job protecting you on matters of national security. But 2 Wants To Know found another empty chair. Now that Thom Tillis is in office, he's replaced Hagan on that Armed Services Committee. And Tillis also missed a meeting a briefing about ISIS from the Pentagon last Tuesday.

I would have been less concerned if he had missed the ISIS briefing in favor of taking a shower in lobbyists' $100 bills. The only time Cheney was "right" on Iraq, or the anywhere in the Middle East for that matter, was back shortly after he worked for Bush the Elder:

Tillis' rhetoric degenerates into absurdity

Taking advantage of the bullshit pulpit:

But Tillis quickly added: "Just because Greece chooses to remain in the Euro doesn't mean things can go on as they were. The Greek government has to make major changes in its spending policy and entitlements. When I was speaker in North Carolina, the state was gripped with a deficit and we made a fundamental policy decision to adopt austerity budgets for four years.

"Today, we have one of the best performing economies in the U.S. and our unemployment dropped from 10.6 percent to 6.4 percent. Greece could learn from North Carolina."

Dude, if the Greek government even tried to pull some of the crap Republicans in the Legislature have done to the people here, they would be dragged out into the street and flayed alive.

How to bleed a bank account the NCGOP way

My, my. The following comment found its way to an unusual place. A place to promote an agenda through some bizarre sense of dialogue while simultaneously bleeding the bank accounts of the ideological and ignorant. North Carolina GOP’s Facebook page.

The NC GOP is a disgrace to North Carolina! You continually push for and pass unconstitutional laws that waste out tax dollars.

ALEC resorts to bullying tactics to silence environmental groups

When your bottom line is bottoming out:

Attorneys for ALEC sent letters to Common Cause and the League of Conservation Voters asking them to immediately “cease making false statements” and “remove all false or misleading material” suggesting that ALEC does not believe in global warming.

The legal demands from ALEC follow an exodus of some of its best known corporate members, including Google, British Petroleum, Facebook, Yahoo and Northrop Grumman.

While cutting off the flow of corporate dollars to ALEC is a critical step in marginalizing the organization, a much more important goal should be for voters to show their disgust for legislators who engage with the group and bring home cookie-cutter bills to be passed. Every such lawmaker and every such bill need to be exposed by the Capital Press Corps before they get anywhere near the floor of the General Assembly for a vote. Only then will we be able to "take back our state" and do the people's business.
